1998 Chevy Tahoe Dies Out While Driving

My 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe kills while driving. It has happened only on long trips and the service engine light doe not come on. It starts back up and runs fine, but the engine has killed more than once, just not back to back. One time after the engine killed, I drove to gas station and it died while idling. I have been told that the electronic control module (ecm) could be overheating on long trips but I just want a second opinion. I went to a service station and the guy said if it didn't relay any signal to the computer via the engine light coming on, he could not diagnose it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I would suspect fuel pump before an odd ecm problem. When was you last fuel filter? An extremely dirty filter will wipe out these fuel pumps if left in play too long.

    Just picked up my 98 from the shop. They could not diagnose the problem. Truck just went dark after a road trip, started right back up. Then did it again in my neighborhood. Couldn't even turn on the flashers. Got it to the shop, tried to start it, nothing, ran cables, started right up. Charging system checked out, fuel pressure checked out. Battery checked out. The only idea they was that the inside connector on the neg post had come loose, if this happens the truck will go dark. I am gonna test their theory pronto. 11/12/2011

1998 Chevrolet C3500 dies randomly when driving down the road - uphill, downhill or flat surfaces. Typically doesn't happen when it's cold. Sometimes it starts back up and sometimes it doesn&#


my younger brothers' truck did the same thing and there was a relay up under the dashboard that would get hot and shut of(kind of a circuit breaker unit) most of the operating systems will flash at you when only battery voltage is available which explains the lights coming on..these newer trucks also have a performance chip in the system that will act up when it gets warm also..replace this and you may be ok..let me know what happens also.. good luck.

1995 tahoe desiel stalls when driving


I used to live on a farm where we had a number of Chevy diesel's in the 90-98 year range. The 6.2 and 6.5L diesel's in those trucks were known to have problems. A very common problem was with the fuel injection pump going bad, causing the engine to intermittently stall for apparently no reason during driving.
